She's an inveterate liar (not a very Christian attribute) and I have little respect for her, but even *I* don't want to see her being used that way.
Thanks for reading my posts!
love how you catholics speak so ill of people and you expect to get into heaven,that would make all this a bigger joke.

Shock: Estimated 54,559,615 Abortions Since Roe v. Wade
by John Jalsevac
Mon Jan 23, 2012 18:21 EST

A new analysis from the National Right to Life Committee’s (NCLC) education department estimates that since the infamous Roe v. Wade Supreme Court decision in 1973, over 54.5 million American babies have died through abortion.

Dave Andrusko, the editor of National Right to Life News, said that the number is “so huge that we can’t really come to grips with it.”

“But what it means is that there are over 3,300 abortions every day—137 per hour–or about one dead baby every thirty seconds.”

This week pro-life advocates are mourning the 39th anniversary of Roe v. Wade, with tens of thousands having marched past the national Capitol today in the national March for Life. NRLC’s estimate was released to coincide with the grim anniversary.

The pro-life organization based its estimate upon data both from the U.S. Center for Disease Control (CDC) and the Alan Guttmacher Institute (AGI), a research institute founded by Planned Parenthood.

What you fail to comprehend is that Jesus Christ (clearly and explicitly initiated His One True (Universal-Catholic)Church in Matthew 16, however (understand) that it is not the "only Church"---but it still has, is and will always be Our Lords One TRUE Church.......There are many divisions (over 42,000) other Christian Churches and denominations in which the saving power of Jesus Christ remains at work for the Salvation of Souls. However Luther began the "Protestant Process" of rejecting what Jesus HIMSELF, and the Apostles originally taught and proclaimed which is the FULLNESS of the Faith and the FULLNESS of the Truth that is manifested "only" in Jesus Christs One True Catholic Church. Of course there (still) remains Salvation outside of the Catholic Church as we are all ecumentical Brothers and Sisters --united in Jesus Christ.
that poor book of mathew gets beaten to death by you,no matter how many times you read it,all it says "upon this rock i will build my church",nowhere do you see a passage that says my catholic church,which according to dan is a city not a church, so it is not the true church of anyones.give it up hojo,you have no proof.

That is true. It has been used many times in the past 10 years.
The question is:
Is this power "from God" being used for high moral purposes and to save souls?
Dan, this is the question you can't face. Humanity has heard all of the spin -- "we thought we were doing the right thing" etc...
I'll face it.

Diplomatic immunity isn't "from God" and doesn't have that purpose of saving souls, does it?

Seventh-day Adventist University names new economics centre after abortionist

by Meaghen Hale

Riverside, California, January 16, 2013 ( LifeSiteNews.com )– The Seventh-day Adventist website ADvindicate has recently drawn attention to the fact that La Sierra University has named a new economics centre after abortionist and gambling magnate Edward C. Allred, who in 1980 claimed to have personally aborted a quarter of a million babies in twelve years.

In 2010, La Sierra, a Seventh-day Adventist University in Riverside, California, established the Edward C. Allred Center to promote free market economics among high school students. The centre’s abortionist namesake founded the Family Planning Associates Medical Group in 1969, a chain of abortion clinics that reportedly makes $70 million in revenue and $5 million in profit annually.

I guess this is where your "assumption" that anything other than Catholicism is "incorrect".

You do realize - you are acting on a "known incorrect", right?

Unless you can prove that Catholicism is correct?

Which hasn't been done yet, but has been proven that it is not.

Now who is living a lie.

It has been proven to be self-righteous (byt he folks who decided upon it) and it is sinful, because it goes against what Jesus stated as the path to salvation, as well as, doesn't include all of his teachings.

Listen up, Jethro....no one said speaking ill of people would get them into heaven, so why are you spreading that lie?

See how that goes?

Telling someone they're lying or defending someone who is ignorant against being used isn't speaking ill of them. However, those who tell the lies had best reconsider their position. As the protestants here are so fond of saying, "It's for their own good."

Now mind your business and look after your own sins.

Why don't you believe Jesus?

Why do you think Jesus selected Judas, if not for the sole purpose to "hand him over".

Are you scared it changes yuor beliefs?

You should, because it does.

It also shows how Jesus loved his choice through and through.

Catholics brag about all the charity work they do for non catholics, yet once they post on here they body slam, insult, and name call, anyone not catholic. Sound familiar REGINA M, DUST STORM, ANTHONY, HOJO, CLAY??

Sitting in the front pew at church every sunday with a big smirk, doesn't mean squat if the other 6 days of the week, they show hateful conduct towards others.

If there really is a God and he keeps score of who is nice and who is not, catholics are going to be in for a big surprise come judgment day.

The Audacity of Pope

I used to believe that the Protestants had a more humble, God-honoring approach, and that the Catholics had an indefensibly high view of the human element within the Church. Things like the succession of the apostolate, the authority of the Church, the so-called “infallibility” of the pope – all of this stuff seemed to me to form a borderline blasphemous package that vaunted and exalted mere human beings at the expense of Christ and His work.

Yet in time, although I saw my previous perspective as eminently understandable, it became clear that it had been an understandable misunderstanding; a misunderstanding that had the peculiar effect of causing me to see things upside down. What I came to recognize, in other words, was that the Catholic position was in actuality the much more humble of the two. Indeed, it was downright self-effacing. For the Catholic position, paradoxically, was that it is precisely because mere men can claim no genuine spiritual authority that the successors of the apostles could claim it; and, in particular, it is precisely because no man can possibly be infallible that the bishop of Rome had to be.

Did you know there is a group called "CATHOLICS FOR FREE CHOICE"

Did you know that catholic women in america have more abortions than protestant women?

Now you know.....B-E-L-O-W!!

..........According to the Alan Guttmacher Institute, which tracks reproductive health data, non-Hispanic Catholic women of childbearing age are 29% more likely than their Protestant counterparts to have abortions (full study*). The rate is even higher--33%--if Hispanics are factored in. Another way of looking at it: while Protestant women make up about 54% of the population, they account for only 37% of the abortions. Catholic women make up 31% of the population and account for 31% of the abortions.

......Given the Catholic Church's longstanding position against abortion, one would think the abortion rate would be far lower than the population as a whole -- and yet, if anything, it seems to be higher.

......This paradox puzzles Catholic leaders on both sides of the issue--like Helen Alvare, the former chief pro-life strategist and spokeswoman for the National Conference of Catholic Bishops, and Frances Kissling, president of Catholics for Free Choice.

No.

Jesus didn't create anything, except a following.

Even that is not created, because that would a choice by a person to follow or not.

You are confused on what Jesus taught.

You do believe Jesus teachings are truth, right?

That Church-State concept seems to go against so much in the Bible (render unto Caesar, etc., etc..).
But thanks to Saint Bonito Mussolini, all that was re-interpreted in 1929. Go figure?
It seems if someone is emotionally invested, they can somehow rationalize the morality of it. Especially if they possess spiritually superior teachings on morality.
Amazing, power bestowed by Mussolini. Maybe there is something to that "whore" thing.
Christ's Kingdom is not of this World therefore the RCC is not Christ's Kingdom either.

Good point!

By definition:

Gnosticism is in the world and of the world.
Catholicism is in the world but not of the world.

The first merely adapts to whatever is the course of the world.(light and dark)
The latter reacts to(although sometimes slowly) the course of the world.(light over dark)

OMG!

We have to put up with your hateful comments to others until christmas 2013, when miraculously for about 2 days you actually speak nice about everyone, but come December 27th you slide back into hate mode.

....I can't wait until judgement day, when God decides who has been good to others.
